A military coalition led by Saudi Arabia said Sunday it had destroyed sites used by Huthi rebels in neighbouring Yemen to launch missiles at the kingdom. The coalition announced in a statement the “destruction over the past 24 hours of ballistic missile (launch) sites run by the Huthi militias in Saada”, a northern Yemeni province bordering Saudi Arabia and controlled by the Huthis. Riyadh and its allies are fighting alongside Yemen’s government against the Iran-backed Huthis in a war that has killed thousands and pushed impoverished Yemen to the brink of famine.
